Dr. Charles Morrison (Standing Committee member for USAPC and former Chair of PECC) contributed to an academic conference organized by the Berkeley APEC Study Center to explore the dynamics of mega-FTAs in progress, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). He participated as a discussant on a panel: The Security Implications of Mega-FTAs.
Among the questions addressed at the conference by invited scholars from the US, Asia, and Europe were:
- What are the economic and political goals of countries that decide to participate in mega-FTA negotiations?
- How do negotiation processes evolve in different political systems?
- What are the implications of regional mega-FTAs for the regional security and political order?
